Manchester United handed Tottenham a lifeline as the Lilywhites try to chase Chelsea down in the race for the Premier League title.
As Tottenham won their game against Bournemouth 4-0 on Saturday, Chelsea were defeated 2-0 by the Red Devils at Old Trafford on Sunday evening. More than the defeat, it was the manner of the defeat as the Blues were horrible, even though they had the likes of Eden Hazard, Diego Costa and Pedro playing.
Even N’Golo Kante had a poor game as he was responsible for the second goal that the Blues conceded.
With Tottenham on fire at the moment and looking ruthless ahead of their final six games, they are in with a real chance of winning the league now and with Chelsea struggling to keep clean sheets, Mauricio Pochettino has been handed with an outside chance of lifting the Premier League trophy soon.
There still are a number of games to go and there will be more ups and downs but that didn’t stop a few Spurs fans from going on Twitter and celebrating the win.
This truly is an incredible period for Tottenham Hotspur. Enjoy it, let’s see where we can go. Most of all:

I have all the faith in Everton to do some damage to Chelsea. Hopefully Southampton can find a draw at least! #COYS

With 32 games played, Chelsea lead Spurs by 4 points. The Blues play Southampton, Everton, Middlesbrough, West Brom, Watford and Sunderland, out of which only Everton and West Brom are away games.
Meanwhile Pochettino’s men play against Leicester City, Crystal Palace, West Ham, Hull City and two blockbuster clashes against Arsenal and Manchester United.
